10:11 pm
missions abroad meanwhile the german parliament was deciding on the future of the five largest and most dangerous german army operations german troops are involved in missions in mali in the mediterranean syria iraq and afghanistan the continuation of all five operations was approved with a large majority that was and we want our soldiers to have legal certainty in their respective dangerous region we also want our partners and allies to know that germany is reliable and committed to its responsibilities with germany still struggling to form a government the mandate was only extended by three months to allow a new coalition room for maneuver one reason for the far left party the link it to vote against the foreign army operations. what will happen if we still don't have a government in three months time extend the mission is for a further three months that would be absurd and it's not fair to the soldiers we're sending on these missions. and that chicken the far right if he supports only the mediterranean sea operations which focus on preventing people trafficking and

weapons smuggling but they want the german army to take on further tasks in the region he'd. like all of the german army or the libyan coast guard to bring migrants back to africa to bring every political party is calling for the three month extension to be used as a time to reflect on the future of the missions abroad and if necessary to make changes to them. to be going on around the world following the u.s. decision last week to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital or germany's past means that the debate here has taken on particular significance last week and protestors in berlin burned israeli flags in public and that shocked many people it was sharply by the government here where now germany's jewish community is calling for tougher laws and the controversy shows no sign of it.

but there were new protests in berlin on tuesday. many here can't understand why donald trump has chosen to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital the palestinians claim east jerusalem as the capital of a future palestinian state and they wonder why there has been such outrage at the burning of israeli flags. germany it's just about to fly a simple flag what about the people who are born in a refugee camp were born stateless what about them. and that doesn't serve our cause and we are against anti-semitism and we strongly condemn it we are also semites. that on tuesday is also the first day of hanukkah. the jewish festival of lights at the brandenburg gate a huge menorah has been installed. as the holiday has been overshadowed by what he called the dramatic anti-semitic scenes of the past weekend. exactly here we
10:14 pm
witnessed a horrible and uncomfortable scene demonstrators chanted israel kills children and burned israeli flags we must not tolerate this. the controversial protests include the burning of israeli flanks german law bans the destruction of flags serving as official symbols like in front of embassies and government buildings but there's no ban for example on protesters burning flags they bring with them germany's central council of jews is demanding tougher laws against demonstrations but some lawmakers are skeptical. because it's i don't think louis can solve conflicts what's unfolding here on the street is in fact a very real conflict israel's actions on the ground as well as its settlements policy exacerbate this conflict. these are one off events but at the moment it doesn't look like that's the case and
